Seattle Seahawks all time top 40 players

8 of 11

8: CB Dave Brown (1976 – 86)

One of the players the Seahawks acquired in the expansion draft, Brown was a notorious ballhawk, picking off 50 passes in Seattle, returning 5 of those for TD’s. He added 12 fumble recoveries. Elected to the College Football Hall Of Game in 2007 (University of Michigan). Member of Seahawks Ring Of Honor. Passed away in 2006, suffering a fatal heart attack while playing basketball with his son.

7: RB Curt Warner (1983 – 89)

3rd pick in 1983 draft and AFC Rookie Of The Year after rushing for 1449 yards and 13 TD’s. Focal point of “Ground Chuck” offense named after Chuck Knox’s preference for the running game. Tore his ACL in game #1 of his second season and he missed all of 1984. Was never quite the same but still put together 6705 yards and 55 rushing TD’s in Seattle. Had a great year in 1986 with 1481 yards and 13 TD’s. Also added 1467 yards and 7 career TD’s receiving. Played 7 games for the Rams in 1990 before retiring. Still lives in the state of Washington and recently met with 12th Man Rising to help promote the Comcast X1 Xfinity Sports App.

6: DE Jacob Green (1980 – 91)

The franchise leader in sacks with 97.5, Green started 176 of 180 games after being the team’s 1st round pick (10th overall)  in 1980. A Ring of Honor member, he’s also the Father-in-law of another former Hawk DE Red Bryant. Surprisingly, Green was only voted to 2 Pro Bowls.

5: G Steve Hutchinson (2001 – 2005)

This one may bring back some difficult memories, as we all remember how badly Tim Ruskell screwed up his free agency and lost him to Minnesota in the prime of his career, but Hutch was the best guard in football from the day he first donned a Seahawk helmet. Lining up next to Walter Jones, he helped lead the way for Alexander’s record rushing year on the way to the Super Bowl in 2005. Hard to believe a guard could have the kind of impact Hutchinson did, but his loss after that season was the beginning of the end for the Mike Holmgren era in Seattle. The Seahawks have been trying (and mostly failing) to plug the left guard hole ever since.
